A couple of weeks ago at the end of November, I took my parents to see the ruins of Dunottar Castle. It is a spectacular setting and one of my favourites, but really needs a good day to do pictures of it justice. I'm going to include the camera settings at the end, because I'm still getting used to my first slr of any kind (D50) so I would love your opinions on what I am doing. Thanks! Dunottar Castle stands on the cliffs at Stonehaven, and was the site of the seige to capture the Crown Jewels of Scotland by Cromwell's army. They did not succeed; the crown jewels remained safe. The castle however was never the same since. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 That cloud above the cliff was blowing snow our way - we left very shortly after this and got caught in a blizzard on the way home Settings: D50, 28-200 F3.5-5.6G, 1/320s, F varied between 13 for the longer distance ones and 4 for the closer wall shots, EV -0.7 for all, ISO 800 for # 1-3, ISO 200 for 4-6. I know, 800 was far too high I forgot to change it from the previous time I used the camera. I used the shutter priority mode because I was using the lens at 200 mm for a few shots and wanted to be sure I could handhold. #5 I didn't think was a great shot but fancied playing with B/W/Sepia options, this is Wally's action :blushing: thanks. Thanks for looking, I'd appreciate any and all comments!
